A group exhibition in a derelict Georgian orangery: 16 contemporary artworks construct a synthetic garden of paradise.


Bradley & Bownes have filled the derelict Clapham Orangery with a plethora of plant-based artworks. Using the unused site that sits humbly in the Notre Dame Estate in Clapham as a means of bringing creativity into the area; the orangery’s unique attributes including towering Georgian columns, high ceilings and great acoustics is the perfect backdrop for 16 contemporary artworks.

Forming a conversation between reality and artificiality, in a synthetic garden of paradise; the Latin phrase 'Hic Ver Assiduum Atque Alienis Mensibus Aestas' inscribed at the top of the orangery’s façade, translates to: 'Here is ceaseless spring and summer in months in which summer is alien'.

#Utopia has become the embodiment of this text, exploring the boundaries between the artificial and manmade. Injecting highly saturated aesthetics and idealisms, #Utopia encompasses all that is promised in the notion of utopic paradise through the creation of a perpetual summer.
